    This is a pretty nice IPA that really brings out the Nelson hops nicely with some distinct white grape and gooseberry notes, as well as the Cascade adding some grapefruit and dank, spicy notes.

    I drank a sixer of Dead Guy Ale once back in the day in a motel room in Aspen Colorado. I got so sick I almost died. I know it was old. I got from the dustiest liquored store on the planet. Never drank anything from rogue ever again I don't think.

    I’ve never had bbq in my life (I know not to try the fake stuff here). Texas? Kansas City? Carolina’s? Where should I try it for my first time? And what should I get? Thanks, my bro.

    Holy crap - really?

    First off, St. Louis is its own style. If you're trying BBQ for the very first time, I think KC or Texas is a great start. Carolina actually has three distinct styles. There's ... there's just so much out there, and it's all so good!

    The best BBQ I have had was in Alabama and South Carolina. That said, I really enjoy North Carolina style.

    Texas and brisket. The places use prime brisket and will probably be the best piece of beef you might ever taste.

    Wow - that's a tough question. Your basically referring to styles of BBQ that are unique to those regions. The Carolinas tend to be more vinegar based sauces, whereas Kansas City is more of a tomato based BBQ sauce.

    Find a place near you that smokes their meats over wood fires and don't get pretentious with it. A good BBQ joint isn't going to be a fancy place typically. Try some dry rub ribs with no sauce, they can be just as delicious as ribs that have been sauced. Everyone has their secret for good BBQ - it might be some unique ingredient, or the cooking method. You just have to go out and find places and try it and decide what you like. Cheers!

    Taking down a local brewer's crowler of their hazy IPA. Not bad, not great. But good to keep Goat Patch going. Cheers!

    Hitting the Obercreek goodness again. This one is called Forty-Two and is an 8% DIPA. So damned good. It’s creamy mango and passion fruit. Scary easy to drink. 32oz of this may go quicker than it should. :wink:

    Despite the name and label notes, this really feels a lot more herbal, dank and spicy than downright piney and resinous, with some black pepper and rather strong citrus notes coming through as well, with pink grapefruit standing out particularly. Beautiful Cascade single-hop IPA.

    Frequency Modulation. An IPA brewed by Kindred Spirit.

    For any financial geeks out there, check out the Cares Act (some kind of corona virus relief). For certain inherited IRAs there is no required minimum distribution (RMD) for 2020. Wow! I guess I really am bored.

    Thanks man. Youre killing it with the music lately. Who knows maybe we will jam again someday but highly unlikely.

    Passing thru North Carolina several times a year for the last 30 years I have found that indeed their style is vinegar based. Great stuff, however I am more inclined to go for the tomato based style.

    I could not help myself. Although I have a refrigerator stocked with a plethora of Richmond IPAs, I just had to get another six pack of this.

    If you want good BBQ, come to my house. Pulled pork, brisket, ribs, you name it.

    It tasted as good as it looked!

    Very perceptive if you! I have, mainly to change it up. I have not been going to breweries, and most of the dates on the IPAs at the Total Wine stores I frequent are not good. So I decided to get more seasonal German beers, as our Total Wine store gets them fairly fresh. Cheers!
